This card started from a piece of Sahara Sand I wanted to TEST something on. The main design on the Sahara Sand layer is from the Baroque Motifs set – and it’s embossed with a few different colors of ink… subtle, soft colors. I stamped w/ Craft White, Baja Breeze and a second generation (stamping ink off once before applying ink to card stock) Kiwi Kiss. Then quickly layered w/ clear embossing powder.
I know you’re questioning the Kiwi Kiss – because it doesn’t look like it in this picture, huh? Yeah – I was surprised myself! But once I saw it and liked it I just KNEW I had to use the sheet of embossed card stock on something. So I set it aside until the right idea came to me.
Then I had the need to make some sympathy cards (two, in fact), to get out in the mail this week. So I pulled my baroque embossed sahara sand from the corner of the desk and put it to use on these cards.
While I don’t enjoy making sympathy cards I do find the “soft and easy” necessity of sympathy cards refreshing. Writing a comforting word inside is the most difficult part.
